Going back to when I started showing people the gems of Detroit as a hobby in 2001, we strive to take people behind the scenes to see and experience things that they may not discover on their own. We have long-standing close relationships that allow us access to places and people that will surprise and delight our tour guests. Our goal is for everyone to say "Wow! That's cool, I didn't know that was here!" I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience? Prepare yourself to experience, explore, and enjoy Detroit, as we help you to become more familiar with all the fascinating things the City has to offer. What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special? We warmly welcome our guests, treating them like family and friends. Our signature style is fun and engaging, and not too serious. We have a great time while we are learning and exploring. Even people who are long-time Detroit visitors, residents, and supporters learn new things on our tours, and have a fabulous time doing it. We have lots of repeat guests, and we conduct private tours for all kinds of groups and occasions. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? Beyond Eastern Market tours, we offer all sorts of outings all around the City of Detroit, private and public, by foot, car and bus, emphasizing the food, fun, architecture, music, history, culture, art, and unique neighborhoods of our City. Customized tours are our specialty: for family groups, friends, co-workers, social clubs, seniors, school children, community recreation departments, social workers, and non-profit organizations.

  • Downtown Detroit
    The Detroit River's international waters stretch out for miles in either direction, winding along the Detroit skyline and kissing the Canadian border. As ships snake their way through the current, they pass lighthouses on small green islands, bridges stretched across overhead, and workers milling about on the riverside docks. Building on 20 years of boating, the captains of the Diamond Jack, Diamond Belle, and Diamond Queen let passengers take in these sights to the tune of guided narration as their ships' white and sea-foam green hulls slice through the water. The three ships safely gather up to 250 passengers on their panoramic upper decks or in protected lower cabins. Today, passengers on these storied steel decks can sip beer, wine, and soft drinks or nibble on snacks from an on-board snack bar during tours. Captains also pilot each ship on private group excursions, as well as school field trips past the river's ships, yacht clubs, parks, and docks.

  • Semseg
    SemSeg's Segway experts equip urban explorers to cruise through Detroit at up to 12.5 miles per hour during self-guided tours. A brief orientation covers proper techniques for turning, stopping, and impromptu jousting. Then, motorists hop aboard scooters and travel up to 24 miles on a single charge. The long battery life allows motorists to cruise down the Riverfront, circle 14-acre Hart Plaza, and crisscross the Rivard Plaza in a single trip. Though SemSeg encourages DIY tours, their guides lead weekend tours through downtown and down the Riverwalk.

  • Inside Detroit
    Regardless of which tour you crawl along with, you'll be traveling under the flapping jaw and friendly wings of a veteran Inside Detroit guide. Along the way, your guide will help arrange personal time with each bar's staff and pull a few strings designed to shower you in a few complimentary surprises (complimentary surprises vary by tour and do not involve pulling shiny pennies from behind your ear). Fill your cranial cup with local Detroit history and culture while enjoying each brew house's distinct lineup of taps and tipplers. While you're at it, strike up a conversation with fellow tour goers, who may be presumed to have at least four common interests—bars, tours, stuff that is "pretty neat," and conversation.

  • Rub BBQ Pub
    R.U.B. BBQ has earned shout-outs from the New York Times as well as a handful of television features for its tender, well-flavored meats. Various proteins are smoked daily and slathered in a made-from-scratch rub of more than 20 spices and herbs, and cooks begin each dish with locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. Aromatic smoke wafting from ribs, chicken dishes, and seafood platters invites guests inside, where dangling light fixtures illuminate red walls and cobalt tiling along with 30 flatscreen televisions that were flattened when an elephant sat down. More than 100 tap and bottled brews, including a lengthy list of Michigan favorites, help to extinguish fiery spices.
